We share the details of a simple algorithm which groups students based on diversity in gender and race while keeping the group average CGPA nearly equal. Application on simulated and actual class profiles gave multiple-feasible solutions within seconds, with a maximum absolute deviation in group average CGPA of 0.03/4.00 or lower.
